Let’s talk how to increase lead generation for business. Is there is a magic bullet that helps you find lots of quality leads to win deals & partnerships?

Maybe.

But, more importantly, there are channels that consistently work: Proven lead generation channels without spending any money into ads.

In this podcast episode, we’ll discuss how to find your market, capture quality leads and convert them into deals without buying ads.

   

Learn how to generate leads without spending money 

We share what worked and what hasn’t worked for us to increase lead generation. For Waseem’s web agency Apexure, the best performing lead channels are traffic from Google search (SEO), the website, LinkedIn & referrals.

For LeadGen as a Software-as-a-service brand, we are doing well with SEO. We also focus on partnerships, cold email, LinkedIn among other channels.

With B2B leads, you basically got 3 options:

1) Buy traffic
2) Buy contacts
3) Attract leads

Buying traffic via ads is a common strategy and can be very effective to increase lead generation. But it requires a budget. Secondly, you can buy contacts, directly via online marketplaces & databases or indirectly via lead scraping. The third strategy of attracting leads is what we’ll focus on with this episode.
